There is an error on page 7.12 of the Zebrafish Book (3rd Edition, 1995).
The protocol for Production of Haploid Embryos, step 3, should read:

"3.  Irradiate sperm with an ultraviolet light (UV, e.g. 38cm
from a 43 cm long Sylvania germicidal tube) for 2 min."

The distance is incorrectly stated as "29 cm".

note: It is listed correctly on page 7.7 as 38cm or 15 inches.

Please make this correction on your copy and advise others who may be
using this protocol.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
